On Ron’s Amazing Stories we have one about how to build your own robot and the consequences of doing so. It is titled How-2 and is quite fun. Also, on the show we have an international version of These Are Your Stories. Listener’s from the UK, Canada, and the Philippines tell us about some strange encounters with the paranormal. So if you want to hear all about it, press that play button.
Featured Story - How-2
Our featured story is a robot tale with a twist. What if robots were not only sentient, but could also reproduce at will? Would the world have to look at them differently? The idea of this came to the mind of author Clifford D. Simak long before our AI robots questions of today. The story is titled How-2 and first appeared in the pages of Galaxy Magazine in November of 1954 and then again on X-minus one when they adapted Clifford’s story to radio. A man orders a robotic dog kit in the mail, and instead receives an android—one ready to serve in every capacity and equally ready to reproduce himself a thousand-fold. All his problems vanish - until the government sticks their bean-counting nose into it. It is titled How-2 and first aired on March 3, 1956.
Other Stories Include - The Rocky Marino Case, The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, The Nightclub Poltergeist, The Barefoot Ghost, The Handprints, and How-2.
